My grandpa has always been there for me.  Ever since I was born he has been there. He has always made Christmas the best. I alway remember opening up presents and then waiting for meme and papa to show up so I can get the best presents.He works as an electrician engineer he's always working over time and works well over 50 hours every week. He probably won't end up retiring and if it wasn’t for him I would not be able to play baseball or have the clothes that I have.

Not only does he help out financially with our family but he also helps out with our busy agenda. My grandpa will always help out with rides and take us out to eat. And to our baseball practices. Just the other day me, him and my brother went out Christmas shopping for my little siblings. I told him what they wanted and with zero hesitation we walked into the store and bought it. He has always been so generous. He always put everyone else first. When my dad was in highschool my grandpa bought him a brand new chevy malibu SS. Apparently my dad had the coolest car in the parking lot in highschool.

I can't even put into words how much he has done for me and my family. I have no clue where we would be if it wasn't for him. A funny thing about my grandpa is that he goes crazy for lottery tickets. He will stop at gas stations just to get “lotto tickets”. He also only buys American cars, and for good reasons too. One time I asked

 “papa? Why do you only buy american made cars?”

 His response was

“Because every time you buy a foreign made car you put americans out of a job.”

There's obviously more to that that what he said but you get the point, the man does not like foreign cars. Ever since I was a little kid my best memories have been from my grandpa. And I cannot thank him enough for that. He has always been there, I love my papa.
